Monica M. White (2018). Freedom Farmers. NC: The University of North Carolina Press In the late 1960’s Fannie Lou Hammer purchased forty acres of land in the Mississippi Delta, launching the Freedom Farms Cooperative (FFC). A community-based rural and economic development project, FFC grew over 600 acres, offering means for local sharecroppers, tenant farmers and domestic workers to pursue community wellness, self-reliance and political resistance. This book expands the historical narrative of black freedom struggle to embrace the work, roles and contributions of southern black farmers and the organizations they formed.
